It might sound like a bit of a stereotype, but associating Switzerland with watches tends to come quite natural. As a matter of fact, you are targeted by ads and ads of watches (and banks) as soon as you step off the plane and walk into Geneva's airport.
Late at night, I was going back to my hotel when I noticed that one of the watch shops had the original idea of using one of the windows to showcase a sample of old tools and equipment once used by watchmakers.
It was a symphony of tiny gears, dials, hands, wheels, screws, springs, levers and other mechanical wonders whose names I would never be able to remember...

Hi Alberto, Those old watches are the memories but they are still so attractive and one thing I know they were made very durable but might not be as accurate as that of digital if lack of maintenance. Great details with nice light along with natural colours. Excellent composition with all these tools. Kind regards

hai sviluppato in maniera perfetta un'idea molto originale.
Il risultato è straordinario sia per composizione, nitidezza e cura del dettaglio.
Bellissimo il tono cromatico complessivo della foto .
Ciao e buon fine settimana

this is really cool.
I can honestly say i've never seen such a collection of watches in one spot.
and those long tools on the left look a little bit like over-kill, but still looks very interesting.
awesome collection of time pieces here.

Brilliant picture of this shop window with old clocks and watchmakers tools. In particular, I note the impressive depth and excellent sharpness and detail. You can almost read the text in the book. I also note that you have almost completely managed to avoid reflections from the street in the shop window. Indeed an excellent photo job! TFS and have a nice weekend!
